Wow spring is early, we are not beginning to feel Autumn here yet though come to think of it the early Autumn flowers are beginning to come out in my garden. I don't recognise the blossom in the bottom photo ... its beautiful.

Very lovely JM! We are starting to get blooms around here too. I am ready for spring! Happy Valentine's Day!

Beautiful spring colour.
Here in Japan, it is still cold, but I know spring is approaching to our city.

Early spring is the best kind. In our part of Costa Rica (the northwest Pacific Coast), we often refer to winter and spring as our summer, even though we are in the Northern Hemisphere. That is because November through May is our dry season, and the weather is sunny, hot and dry.

Our trees actually drop their leaves to conserve water, so after a few months it looks like winter up north with bare trees, which is fine because it makes the animals easier to see. Then everything turns lush and green during the green season that is summer up north.

wow from your excellent grey photo a few days earlier to eye-popping spring flowers. BTW, thanks for your comment about the term Indian and Native America, it gave me an opportunity to provide an explanation of a few things about these terms in the comments part of my website. It is a commonly asked question so hopefully I have provided some helpful information for everyone. Have a good day!

Looks like our two cities are neck and neck for spring. I think yours may be winning though. Gorgeous flowers!!!!

I'll take a bouquet of the white blossoms tied with a red ribbon for Valentine's Day, please.
